Demographic, Social, Educational and Economic Data for France, 1833-1925 (ICPSR 7529) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Prepared by ICPSR under a project to automate major portions of the Statistique Generale de la France, this is a collection of demographic, social, education, economic, population, and vital statistics data for France, 1833-1925. This conversion project is a continuation of one conducted in 1972, for which a similar data collection was created, SOCIAL, DEMOGRAPHIC, AND EDUCATIONAL DATA FOR FRANCE, 1801-1897 (ICPSR 0048). The project to collect and prepare these data was sponsored by two French and two American groups: ICPSR and the Center for Western European Studies at the University of Michigan, and the Fourth and Sixth Sections of the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes and Conseil National de la Recherches Scientifique in France. Both collections include data recorded at the departement, arrondissement, chef-lieu, and ville level. In this collection, materials from the vital statistics series were prepared for selected years rather than for each year in the period from 1900-1925. The years that were chosen clustered around the quinquennial censuses and also included (because of the violent demographic dislocations produced by World War I) each year in the 1914-1919 period. In addition, some vital statistics for the nineteenth century (1836-1850, 1880, and 1892) obtained from fugitive published volumes that could not be located during the course of the 1972 project were prepared. The 136 datasets in this collection contain: (1) French population, economic, and social data obtained from the quenquennial censuses of 1901, 1906, 1911, and 1921, that detail the composition of the population by categories of age, sex, nativity, marital status, religion, place of residence, and occupation, (2) industrial census data for the years 1861-1896, (3) data on primary education in France for 1833, 1901, and 1906, as well as data on secondary and higher education in France for the years 1836-1850, 1880, and 1892, and (4) data from a separate series of annual vital statistics (Mouvement de la Population) that cover the years 1836-1850, 1892, and 1900-1925, citing births, deaths, and marriages in the nation.

Funding

This study was funded by:

  • National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH: 22826-76-11 )
  • National Science Foundation (NSF: SOC76-22228)

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:   arrondissements, census data, census regions, demographic characteristics, economic behavior, economic indicators, educational facilities, elementary education, higher education, historical data, industrial indicators, nineteenth century, occupations, population characteristics, population migration, primary education, secondary education, social behavior, social indicators, students, twentieth century, vital statistics

Geographic Coverage:   France, Global

Time Period:  

  • 1833--1925

Universe:   The French population, economic, and educational system, as well as French students, during selected years between 1833 and 1925.

Data Types:   administrative records data, census/enumeration data, event/transaction data, survey data

Data Collection Notes:

All data processing work in connection with the project was carried out by ICPSR in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with the consultation and assistance of members of the Center for Western European Studies and of the Ecole Pratique. The work at Ann Arbor was carried out in collaboration with a closely related project under way in France that was conducting limited but systematic comparisons of the published data with original unpublished materials preserved in local archives.

Arrondissement-level census data can be aggregated to the departement level, and both arrondissement and departement-level data can be aggregated to the national level. In addition, for most datasets a national-level record that appeared in the original sources was also processed. Variables identifying the geographical units have been standardized across datasets to permit the merging of information from more than one dataset. Thus it is possible to supply only portions of particular datasets (e.g., selected variables) merged with specific variables from other census datasets. It is also possible to routinely merge these census data with the primary, secondary, and higher education materials, with the industrial census data, and with the vital statistics data obtained from the Mouvement de la population series. In fact, one dataset (Part 18) contains census data and some vital statistics data for the years 1900, 1901, 1905, and 1906.

Methodology

Data Source:

(1) quinquennial censuses of population, 1901-1921, (2) Statistique de l'enseignement -- primaire, (3) Statistique de l'enseignement -- secondaire, (4) Statistique de l'enseignement superieur, (5) Mouvement de la population, and (5) Resultats statistiques du recensement des industries et professions

Extent of Processing:  ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Performed consistency checks.
  • Standardized missing values.
